Description & Specs

The following specs were carefully collected and recorded by a skilled technician. For a more detailed description and questions regarding sound, feel, or cosmetic condition, please visit our Lincoln Avenue showroom or call to speak to one of our Used and Vintage experts.
Finish Details: Original
Body Material: Maple Body
Neck Material: Mahogany Neck
Fingerboard Material: Ebony
Neck Profile: "C" profile
Neck Thickness (IN): .81" (1st fret), 1.00" (12th fret)
Fingerboard Radius: 9.00"
Nut Width: 1-9/16"
Scale Length: 24 3/4"
Neck Details: Set-in one piece mahogany neck with bound ebony fretboard, block inlays, and headstock truss rod adjustment. The nut has been replaced.
Electronics: Original Gibson pickups with patent number decals, and original wiring harness with Varitone and inductor, stereo output, 3-way toggle switch, and volume/tone controls for each pickup. The pot codes are obscured by the metal shields, but appear to be original to the instrument.
Pickup Measurements: 7.7k (neck), 7.5k (bridge)
Hardware: The nut has been replaced, and the bridge is a non-original Nashville-style Schaller bridge. The original ABR-1 posts are still in place.
Weight: 9lbs 8oz
Modifications/Repairs: The nut and bridge have been replaced.
Case Details: Original hardshell case
Cosmetic Condition: The guitar is in very clean condition; the finish is glossy with light checking, minor scratches and dings, and other minor blemishes. The back of the body has very minor buckle rash, and the neck is glossy and smooth. There is a small badge on the back of the headstock from a prior dealer.
Serial Number: 536151
Tech Notes: The guitar plays well with low action and optimal neck relief. It is currently set up with 10s, and the truss rod is adjustable. The frets are wide and low with light wear and divots present. The serial number dates the guitar to 1969; the guitar represents a transitional era with multiple pre-1969 appointments, including the one piece neck and lack of a "Made in USA" mark on the back of the headstock.
